Baseball is a game of milliseconds and baseball players need elite training to get the competitive advantage to develop the power to excel at all levels- AA, AAA, High School, College and beyond. At Athletic Republic we consistently prove that our speed, agility, and power training make athletes faster, stronger, and more agile than our competition. Getting 0.1 seconds off your 60-yard dash time can potentially put you at first base 4-5 feet ahead of where you get to now. Think of all the ground balls last season that you almost legged out. The steal that you were 6″ away from being safe. What about the grounder in the hole at short that you just nipped with your glove. There is no doubt that speed and agility training is essential to becoming a more complete player.
Private training is the best option for our pitchers because of the special considerations that must be incorporated for the overhead athlete. Arm care, rotational power, and mobility all factor into our assessment progress and programming. Programs can range from monthly program development or meeting 1-2x week or even every month.
Hitters are being inundated with technology and analysis of launch angles, exit velocity, etc. All of these tools are great but must be accompanied by an individualized strength and conditioning program. A blend of private training to develop power accompanied with small group speed, agility and sensory training is the ideal combination to help our hitters develop more power, leg out hits and improve their 60 times.
We do not have any club affiliations and would be happy to work directly with your coaches or private instructors. We do not coach pitching or hitting mechanics- we simply help you develop the physical traits to throw harder and hit with more exit velocity.
“I started training with Athletic Republic due to my lack of athleticism and strength as it was starting to limit what I could do on the field. I trained for five plus years at AR, I not only got substantially quicker and stronger, but my confidence on the field rose and allowed me to thrive at the college level. The speed, agility, and functional strength that Athletic Republic provides is crucial for any baseball player looking to gain an edge. The coaches do a great job of tailoring workouts for athlete’s specific needs. I would highly recommend Athletic Republic to any athlete serious about taking his or her game to the next level.”
Many aspects of the Athletic Republic Acceleration Training programs are universal to all sports, designed to develop overall athleticism and resilience, but we also recognize that each sport and discipline has specific demands. We address those needs not only with our individualized “One Size Fits One” approach to training, but with extensive sport-specific protocols developed over nearly three decades of training athletes.
We take football training far beyond the standard weight room. Our football training for prepubescent athletes focuses on developing coordination, agility and speed since muscle mass develops later in a young athlete’s life. As athletes mature and the level of competition increases, training focuses more on the development of power/strength and running efficiency. Professional players spend the largest portion of time on power/strength development, but still spend time working on movement skills and running efficiency.
Baseball and fastpitch softball are games of inches that require split-second reactions, instinctual skills and lightning fast agility. By focusing on speed, power, and agility we can give every baseball player the tools to be more successful on the field, regardless of their position. Our training improves rotational strength and stability to develop hitting with explosive power. Pitching velocity is increased by strengthening the acceleration and deceleration muscles used for every throw, while at the same time we focus on arm health for longevity. Our dynamic stability training develops the body control that is essential for making a defensive play.
Every basketball game is made up of hundreds of short bursts of speed; our basketball training works on improving sprinting efficiency and speed using our high-speed running treadmill. Explosive power translates into the ability to drive to the basket, chase down a loose ball, or leap for a rebound or jump ball; we focus extensively on hip strength to generate the power that informs all aspects of a player’s game. Finally, our basketball training emphasizes dynamic stability so players can maintain body control in all directions and stability under all situations, even at full speed.
Skating is the foundation of playing hockey. It takes proper skating mechanics, explosive speed, quickness and balance to consistently outmaneuver your opponents and become a top player. This is why hundreds of past and present professional hockey players have trained at Athletic Republic. Using a combination of cutting-edge technology like our Hockey Treadmill, or utilizing hockey powercords to facilitate optimal nerve and muscular stimulus, our hockey athletes come away with significant improvements in skating efficiency, coupled with improved puck-handling and shooting movements.
The game of field hockey requires players to have sport specific skills, as well as athletic attributes. Working on becoming an athlete can be a very significant aspect of the game. Field hockey requires speed, quickness, explosive power, as well as strong aerobic endurance. A solid aerobic endurance base will help a field hockey player with the repetitive series of high intensity movements and exercise required to play at a high level.
As the preferred training partner to the US National Lacrosse teams, we understand what it takes to become the best athlete and lacrosse player: the right mix of lacrosse specific skills, enhanced speed, agility, quickness and power. It is essential that a lacrosse-specific training program balances the rigours of lacrosse’s heavy endurance load, while establishing an elite speed-program rooted in acceleration training. Our program focuses on advanced level conditioning, strength training, as well as speed and agility work that translates to both sides of the field in lacrosse.
We’ve developed a unique program to specifically train soccer players to improve their acceleration, agility and power so they can become not just better athletes, but better soccer athletes. Through our evidence-based training protocols and patented equipment, we can improve an athlete’s mechanics so they have a faster first step, can change direction quicker, and have the stamina to play as well in the opening minutes as the closing minutes. In addition, they develop the dynamic stability that is crucial to becoming more resistant to lower-extremity injuries.
The quick change of direction required in a top level tennis athlete is almost unparalleled in other sports. Athletic Republic speed and agility work performed on our patented Super Treadmill and Plyofloor elevates muscle coordination, footspeed, and movement precision to facilitate that next-level change of direction. On average, a 20% gain in peak force and power provides another level to a tennis athlete’s game. And the unique Plyo Press Machine allows tennis athletes to take explosive power training to a higher level.
Our training protocols for volleyball players to improve their acceleration, power and on-court agility for success on the court. We can improve an athlete’s mechanics so they rise higher with more hang time giving them more explosive power behind every hit. We also provide exact neurological learning and coordination that improves functional volleyball strength and the ability to set, pass, serve, spike and block, as well as improve take-off and landing mechanics.
